Plenty of mudlarks in opposition here and most of them have some sort of chance. Top-weight Nanabad along with the likes of Youceeyouceecee and Ecoeye come into it, but a much improved performer last season was KEEP BELIEVING (nap) who also performs well fresh and can take the beating.

Improved throughout last season after a narrow defeat at this meeting last year off a mark of 40; gained three wins and back down to a mark just 2lb higher than his last winning mark; could be better drawn but could well take all the beating.

Decent form in bumpers and showed her Flat ability with victory in a 1m4f maiden on heavy ground at Fairyhouse in October; pulled up after a bad mistake in a Clonmel maiden hurdle last month; ground won't be a problem but the drop back in trip looks far from ideal.

Sole victory came in a heavy ground maiden at Gowran in 2016; narrowly beaten in this race last year off a 5lb higher mark and ran well in a Listed race subsequently; didn't match that afterwards but her ability to handle the ground and run well fresh puts her on the shortlist here.

Both wins have come on heavy ground and his best form in a light campaign last year was on the same surface at Listowel in September; ran okay on his reappearance last year and should have an each-way chance.

Lightly raced horse, his sole victory coming in a soft ground 1m4f Galway maiden two years ago; two reasonable runs over the winter in a Leopardstown handicap hurdle and a 2m handicap at Dundalk; ground probably not an issue but an unlikely winner over this trip.

Doesn't always start the season well but developed into a useful handicapper on testing ground last season with wins at Roscommon and Listowel; dropped 5lb over the winter and has to have a chance if fit enough to do himself justice.

Not the most consistent last season but did win four times and has a definite preference for soft or heavy ground; just 2lb higher than his last winning mark here and cannot be discounted.

Still a maiden but showed plenty of ability in maidens and one handicap on soft and heavy ground last season; has been dropped 7lb and should be able to make a mark in handicap company.
